Pre-registration is always appreciated and will available quite soon. We'll announce it out here when it's ready. You can also just show up.

Sorry for all the newbie questions:

What is all inolved in the Ice Bowl? Just a doubles tourney in Jan? How much does it cost? Where is it at?

If I missed a thread or page about this, I apologize and would love a helpful link or any information. Thanks! Also is there a link to tourney rules and regulations and how they all work competitively??

For an overview, poke around http://www.icebowlhq.com. Ice Bowl in KC is group grope kind of event that is organized just enough that we manage to sign up 200-300 people and feed most everyone who wants to eat via chili and other victuals that everyone brings to share. It's about fun and charity and striving to get some PR for disc golf. It's competition light in which mulligans can be purchased to make your score better the first round. That first round is played in a group of your choice, or a group that chooses you or any other group. The second round is played essentially against the people on your card, which consists of people who shot close to your score the first round. Card winners get a disc. The overall champion gets to keep the Ice Bowl trophy for a year.

If you want to get on the mailing list for disc golf in KC announcements,  shoot me an email tp rick at discgolfworld dot com. We'll hit you up for KCFDC membership the next time.

Here's an entry form for Ice Bowl 2009, which is Sunday, January 25 at Rosedale. We are running it like we have in the past. If you have any questions, please give me a shout.

Please bring chili and/or other edibles or drink-ables to share. Also are accepting prizes for the CTPs. Two targets up for grabs so far.

I just sent out emails with the following information to our large list of Kansas City disc golf enthusiasts. If you're not yet on this list, and would like to be included in future emailings, please send me an email with your name or if your prefer, post it here.

Thanks,

Rick

First of all, here's to a happy, healthy, and more prosperous new year to everyone.

Our single reason for writing today is let everyone know that Kansas City's 22nd Annual Ice Bowl is January 25 at Rosedale Park. Once again, there will be chili contest and a potluck lunch, provided by those who bring food to share. The KCFDC will provide beverages, bowls, utensils, and power. Ice Bowl easily Kansas City most popular events. Last year we had 296 players, helpers, and supporters. For more on this event, including the names of all 296 players:

http://kcfdc.org/forum/index.php?topic=1663.msg8594#msg8594

We already have 14 players registered for Ice Bowl 2009. Pre-registration for this event really helps. Stop by Disc Golf World to sign up. You can download an entry form here:

http://www.kcfdc.org/docs/icebowlkc.pdf

And finally, I’ve tracked the weather, the participation, and our charitable totals for Ice Bowl from 1996 through 2008. We had record-setting high temperatures in 2002 (64°) and 2006 (55°). In 2003, it never got above 16°. And many Chiefs fans may recall that it was on Ice Bowl Sunday in 2000 that Derrick Thomas had an automobile accident that would prove fatal later in the week. Here’s a link to the Kansas City Ice Bowl historical chart.

http://www.icebowlhq.com/docs/kcibhistory.pdf

The beauty of Ice Bowl is that we never know what the weather is going to be, but that whatever the weather, the show must go on. I’m looking forward to another huge throng on January 25. My weather prediction for this year is moderate temperatures, no snow, partly cloudy, with light winds.

If you have any Ice Bowl related questions, please give me a shout.

I think they changed them the week before last year.  The course is set pretty short right now regardless.

We changede 9 pin placements last week and will need to change about 6 more of them before the Ice Bowl.  The course will be set near its shortest with some considerations made for speed of play.

I can not tell you had glad I am that IceBowl is not today.   -2 w/o wind.   Don't get me wrong.  I'd still be there, but even I might whine a little.

Pinot Noir, or perhaps a Cabernet Sauvignon for me.
